Valerie Strauss at The Washington Post’s “Answer Sheet” has just published a guest post by me titled The importance of being unprincipled.

It’s a commentary on the self-righteous zeal of some school reformers, most recently exemplified Rhee & Fenty’s appalling “Manifesto” yesterday in The Wall Street Journal.

In many ways, today’s Washington Post column is a companion piece to the one I wrote earlier this month in The Huffington Post, Let’s Do Less ‘Fire, Ready, Aim.’
